The NFL trade deadline is coming up in 23 days — Nov. 3.
And it the Eagles bumbling big boss Howie Roseman isn’t constantly working the phones to pawn off overpaid and overrated Alshon Jeffery, Jeff Lurie should can Howie.
Since joining the Eagles in 2017, Jeffery has played through cracked ribs, a torn rotator cuff and suffered a Lisfranc injury during the 2019 season.
The 6-3 receiver has had some incredible moments, using his size and physicality to dominate defensive backs.
Unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to play this season and will miss today’s Steelers game with an illness.
Jeffery is owed $13 million next season and is a guarantee to be cut next spring. However, the Eagles are likely going to shop him around the league before that happens. He could draw some interest, but Philly won’t get much back. It’s possible he can make an impact as a complementary weapon, but trading for Jeffery and hoping he stays healthy is a massive gamble.
